Addie Camp, was built in 1913 and was shipped from South Dakota where it was taken out of service in 2008. Mary Krull has now transformed that retired train car into a local beer and wine bar mixed with a restaurant.
Krull: “The car itself will be seating only with tables, and attached to the train car will be a two story building. Tha houses the kitchen, bathroom, and there will be rentable space on the second story of the building.”
Fresh and local food will be served from the kitchen run by Maya Wilson the author of Alaska from Scratch.
Krull: “A lot of our greens are coming from Fresh 365, which is our hydroponic greenhouse located behind Addie Camp.”
The train car has been attached to a retro style building. The building features a beer and wine bar, and a 2nd story dining and meeting space.
The Addie Camp railcar holds special meaning to the Krull family, who spent their summers in South Dakota riding the train, and as a family sat in this very train car when it was in operation.
Addie Camp is now the second train car atop Whistle Hill Loop, just outside of Soldotna. [email protected] opened its doors in December of 2017.
Addie Camp will officially open its doors on January 3, from 5-9pm, for dinner service. Reservations are highly recommended.
Krull: “This will be our official opening, but we will end up doing a grand opening later down the line.”
